We have registered our school for the Rights Respecting School Award which has been developed by UNICEF. The Award has been developed to help everyone in schools behave responsibly by respecting each others rights.
190 of the world's 195 countries have promised to recognise the rights of children.
Click here to download a leaflet which summarises the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child.
In a similar way to your class representatives going along to the Pupil Council to represent you, we have MPs who go to the government meetings to represent all the people in Orkney. Alistair Carmichael does this job in London for Orkney and Shetland. He will be coming into school with some of the people who work for UNICEF to see what we do at Glaitness to try our best to be a Rights Respecting School.

Blue Peter is asking children to turn unwanted T-shirts into surgical gowns. The target is 20 000 gowns which will save the charity an amazing £60 000 - enough money for 300 operations!
We are asking for donations of unwanted T-shirts, of any size or colour, which we can customise.
Please support us!
Thank you for all the Tshirts we have collected so far!
